The Cape Coral police recently arrested and charged David James Marrs, 19, of 4507 S.E. 14th Ave., in connection to a Feb. 10 break-in at a Shell gas station, according to officials.

Between 1 and 5 a.m., someone attempted to pry the back door of the gas station, at 4403 Del Prado Blvd. S. When that was unsuccessful, the person went to the front door and broke it to gain entry into the convenience store.

Once inside, the person stole cigarette cartons, lighters, lottery tickets and $500 cash. Upon leaving the store, the person dropped a few cigarette cartons on the ground.
